Psychedelic frogfish - Found Again!

24 September 2014 - 01:45 PM

After five years away, it's back. We found a juvenile Psychedelic frogfish this week in Ambon. Still haven't decided quite how I am going to reward my guide for spotting it!


Filmed in Ambon at my dive centre, Dive Into Ambon.

The Daily Planet Show, Discovery Channel Canada

07 April 2014 - 06:01 PM

Some friends in Canada contacted me to congratulate me on one of my clips being used on the Daily Planet Show, Discovery Canada, last week. They even credited me by name. However they had not asked for permission to use the clip.


In the past the same channel has requested permission to broadcast other clips of mine and, as they do not offer any licensing fee, I have always refused.


I have sent a couple of emails to the only email address I can find on their website, but so far no response. The video clip is clearly labelled under the CC Attribution + Noncommercial + NoDerivative license. I am rather angry about this.


Does anyone have any good way to contact them or advice.





Tubastraea micrantha shrimp

Does anyone have an ID for these shrimp? We find them exclusively on Tubastraea micrantha. Tricky little things to photo or video. So far found then in both Lembeh and Ambon and I think I remember seeing a photo from the Philippines. I can't find them in any of my ID books.

Thanks for any help.
